The United States military of the future could have every asset linked together, from the battlefield to headquarters and every location in between — including space.

Defense One reported each of the four branches of service recently submitted their latest edition of the National Military Strategy. The document is classified, but top generals have hinted there was cooperation between the Air Force, Army, Marines, and Navy when the document was put together — and it likely involves connected warfare.

Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein talked about a connected service at an Air Force event earlier this month.

"Every Tesla car is connected to every other Tesla car," Goldfein said. "If a Tesla is headed down the road and hits a pothole, every Tesla that's behind it that's self-driving, it will avoid the pothole, immediately. If you're driving the car, it automatically adjusts your shocks in case you hit it, too.

"What would the world look like if we connected what we have in that way? If we looked at the world through a lens of a network as opposed to individual platforms, electronic jamming shared immediately, avoided automatically? Every three minutes, a mobility aircraft takes off somewhere on the planet. Platforms are nodes in a network."

All four branches of service have been looking at ways to connect their assets, projects that include tanks with smart armor that would automatically communicate to other tanks when they are fired upon and linking together fighter jets to ships to acquire and fire at targets.

Adm. John Richardson, Chief of Naval Operations, said this in July: "I want to network everything to everything."

It was reported in July the Air Force is also looking at incorporating space-based weapons into its future arsenal.

This week, Popular Mechanics reported the military is interested in using more solar panels, particularly as the world's electrical grid continues to age.
